Reasoning the Unreasonable
kripto

As I sit here with a lit cigarette between my lips,
 1
Contemplating why there is a lit cigarette between my lips
 2
I feel a loss of words
 3
 
 
Some things are unexplainable
 4
This is not one of those things
 5
Can Addiction be a form of love?
 6
Am I addicted, or am I in love?
 7
 
 
Simultaneously, both seem true
 8
The poison is said to spread
 9
But I see it only contained
 10
And released and contained again
 11
 
 
As I am required to be restrained
 12
to be quarantined from others
 13
Separated, fenced in like cattle
 14
That is the reality I face
 15
 
 
However, I am not alone
 16
There are more like me
 17
That live like me
 18
That breathe like me
 19
 
 
However, no matter how many there are
 20
Still we are alone
 21
We Live alone
 22
We breathe alone
 23
And we die alone
 24

Just wait till they outlaw alcohol and coffee.
Walking past a school in California 25 years ago I got screamed at for poisoning the children's air.
You could always tear the filters off and smoke one whole pack at a time if you wanted to hasten your own demise but waiting to die of loneliness may be the more prudent option.
